Fortunately, I’ve recently reached out to a fellow expat and that’s quickly resulted in meeting other expats too. Let’s face it. No one understands what you’re going through better than someone that’s going through the same thing. It’s been wonderful to sit with someone over coffee and compare expat experiences and discuss what our lives were like back home.
Landing work is still a challenge in Argentina. Thankfully, my new friend was able to introduce me to another expat who hired me to become a freelance writer. The experience has been great because I get to do something I love, which is writing, and get paid for it at the same time. It’s still no substitute for a permanent job, which I hope to land someday, but it’s better than nothing.
